mine works but uses my webcam instead of my mic for sound input. It sounds surprisingly decent.

TTT anyone got this? I don't have a mic but I do have speakers. I'd like to see how clear it is. Give me a call, nocternal is my user name.

It uses a central server for the screen name database and what not but the actual calls are peer to peer. I don't think it will be a pay service, it will be like AIM or any messenger app out there except its live voice.
